Elizabeth In Her Underpants

It's time for another challenge on Nettie G's Digital Challenge Blog.  This challenge is to introduce Nettie G's new digi set which includes 5 pieces.  Over the next 3 weeks we will be having a fashion show with Elizabeth, our model from 1910. 

Week 1 - Elizabeth in her undergarments
Week 2 - Elizabeth in her petticoat
Week 3 - Elizabeth in period dress

Now hop on over to NettieG's Digital Challenge Blog and get Elizabeth in her undergarments.  She's free.  If you make a project using her by Sunday, January 15, 2011, 11:59 PM EST and link it on the blog, you will be sent the next digital image in this progressive challenge. 

This is my project using Elizabeth in her undergarments.

The recipe is as follows:
5X6.5" card
Cut card cover (5X6.5") from DCWV Lace and Linen Paper Stack.  Don't apply it to the card until ribbon is attached.  Make sure ribbon wraps over the top and bottom.  That way the cut ends don't show.
Cut oval from contrasting paper using George Cartridge to fit Elizabeth on.
Color Elizabeth.  I used Promarkers.  Colors I used:
     Skin - Ivory, Satin, Coral
     Hair - Cool Grey 1 and 5
     Corset - Almond, Putty, Blossom
     Hose - Blossom
     Shoes - Tan, Putty
Adhere Lace to back of oval and apply Elizabeth to the oval
Prima Flower
Spare Parts Brad
The sentiment is computer generated.  It says, "Thanks for helping me to hold it together."

Please let me know how you like this format.  I'm trying to make it easier to know how to make a project.  Thank you for visiting us today.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy


  1. absolutely beautiful card

  2. So beautiful, love your image! TFS I will have to check out that challenge!

  3. Your card and instructions are great. The writing on your blog is a bit hard to read due to the background I think.


I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
